Happy Monday friends. I have realized two things recently...one that the whole scrapbooking "industry" is changing. It's definitely different now compared to five (or even two) years ago and second, I scrapbook because at the root of it all, I love it and this is how I show my love for my family. Documenting both the special occasion as well as the everyday moments shows that I care about them and that I don't want to forget the special memories we share.
With that being said, I'm making a conscious effort to continue doing what I do not for design team responsibilities or the need to add another project to my "published item" list. Gone are those days. This week, I'm sharing some projects that I made for me and my family with the help of challenges. I love challenges, they take me out of my comfort zone. But I'm not playing along because I want to be in the DT or that I want to be "noticed". Nope. I'm playing because I am inspired and it helps me use up my stash.
So how about let's start with this one....
I made the layout below using this sketch from Stick it Down blog.
I also used the following prompts from Scrap our stash challenge....
Create a layout and you must include the specific items and quantities on the list below:
5 ~ Patterned Papers
4 ~ Stickers or Cardstock Stickers
3 ~ Numbers
2 ~ Stamps or Rub ons
1 ~ Paint or mist
and here's the result...
These are images from when my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary two years ago. Yes I'm that behind and no I'm not at all sad about it.
As for the breakdown of the prompts, here it goes...
5 ~ Patterned Papers (I actually used 6 counting the journaling block cut from pattern paper)
4 ~ Stickers or Cardstock Stickers (title, word stickers and even dimensional ones which are the pinwheel and camera)
3 ~ Numbers (the numbered journaling, handwritten 2012 and #2 on the bottom)
2 ~ Stamps or Rub ons (the stamped numbers by the photos and the stamped sentiment on the bottom)
1 ~ Paint or mist (black speck of mists scattered in the layout)
Till next time,
